Idles very rough, overheats less than 5 min after start. Check engine light on.

Just had intake manifold gasket, spark plugs & wires replaced. Radiator flushed. Now runs rougher than before work done. Overheated then wouldn't start after letting it cool more than 10 min. Had to tow home. Now starts, same symptoms as above.

There are a few possibilities, however to suggest a repair that has not been proven doesn't help! .. Vehicle presence IS required for hands-on testing to confirm the exact failure .. Perhaps you should contact whomever did the work you just had done to see if they will stand behind the repair... Especially since it is worse than before!
